Our prediction for this Netherlands Eredivisie match:
Almere City and Zwolle go head to head at Yanmar Stadion in the opening match of Saturday’s program. Almere City do not seem to be competitive at this level, with the team conceding 12 goals in total in three consecutive defeats to Twente, Fortuna Sittard, and Feyenoord. The newcomers are desperate to grab something from Saturday’s clash and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Zwolle. Comoros forward Faiz Mattoir should miss out with injury for the home side.
The Blauwingers, on the other hand, enjoyed the taste of victory at the weekend, with the team beating Utrecht thanks to Ferdy Druijf’s goal. Zwolle are more of a team than Almere City and we predict that they will take advantage of the home team’s shaky defence. As for the away side, both Ryan Thomas and Samir Lasgir are rated doubtful for the match.
Highlighted Team (Zwolle):
Founded on June 12, 1910, PEC Zwolle is a Dutch football club which competes in the Eredivisie. Zwolle have yet to win the national championship, but they did remarkably well to lift the Dutch Cup trophy in 2014. Ron Jans’s troops impressed in the title game, with the team rolling over Dutch giants Ajax 5-1.
The Blauwingers play their home games at MACPARK Stadion, the venue with the capacity of 14,000 people. The multi-use stadium was opened on August 29, 2009. Zwolle’s home kit is blue and white, while the colour of their away jersey is green and white. In the 2014/15 season the Blauwingers represented the Netherlands in the Europa League, with the team losing to Sparta Prague in the play-off round.
The likes of Henk Timmer (237), Johan Hansma (231), Bert Konterman (219), Arne Slot (208), and Jasper Drost (182) are the players with the most league appearances for the club. Go Ahead Eagles are considered the club’s biggest rivals as both teams are located at the river Ijssel.
